Do you believe Muslim countries are capable of supporting democratic governments?

  • Moderation is key.

    Muslim countries are capable of supporting democratic governments if it suits their goals. A nation with any religion can have a democracy if the nation is moderate in its beliefs. Similarly, if the US were based on Christian extremism, democracy would not be possible because we would be acting up ancient rituals and orders in the Bible that are mostly ignored today, and also polarizing to many people.

  • I believe Muslim countries are capable of supporting democratic governments.

    I definitely agree, that Muslim countries are capable of supporting democratic governments. There are already several countries with a majority Muslim population that are democratic. The state of Indonesia has the highest population of any Muslim majority country in the world, and it is a democracy. Turkey is a
    secular democracy, and the majority of its population is Muslim. Lebanon is
    about 60% Muslim, and another democracy. Many countries with substantial Muslim
    populations are democracies, with elections, legislatures and the consent of
    the governed. So yes, Muslim countries are indeed capable of being supportive of democracy.

  • They're no different

    They aren't any different to western countries like America and France some of them are democracy's and others just have strict dictators that make the whole country seem worse than it actually is. They are also often targets for terrorists like Isis and al quieda so it harms their economy and makes it so their is no time for elections.

  • They rule by force.

    No, I do not believe that Muslim countries are capable of supporting democratic governments, because there is no way the people, if given the choice, would stand for the rigid rules that their totalitarian governments put in place. A small group of men have to impose government on the rest of the people in a Muslim country. People naturally want to be free.
